Think Piece: BANKS
BANKS is an artist I’ve had my eye on for quite a while now, mostly after hearing her song, “Waiting Game” back in 2014. I was instantly attracted to the dark, almost whimsical tone and found myself quickly falling in love with all of her songs. I also found myself falling for her openness, her honesty, and her fierceness after “getting to know her” through her videos and interviews on the internet.
How did I figure out what I want? Sometimes, trial and error; I like to take chances. My first couple of stabs at the music industry were made with the influence of a lot of different voices. People told me I needed to change my name, what I needed to sing about, what I should look like and how to spend my money… it got pretty confusing.
